  • Bacolod Backpacker Inn: The Hostelry
    Posted in: Where to Stay

    Are you a local? I have a question for you: think of a Bacolod backpacker inn that you can recommend to your foreign friends, or friends and family who are out of town. Couldn’t think of anything? That’s precisely the point. I grew up in Bacolod, but I have yet to see an inn, hostel or bed and breakfast that pars up with the ones I see in other Asian countries (on the internet because I have yet t travel). Well, not until The Hostelry opened.


    The Hostelry

    The Hostelry Front Desk - Backpackers Inn Bacolod

    Front Desk at The Hostelry

    A chic but affordable and fun place to stay. At this hostel, you’ll get more than an
    affordable bed, you’ll get an authentic Bacolod travel experience. (Taken from their Facebook Page)

    This is, most probably, the first Bacolod backpacker inn that looks and feels expensive, but will not break your wallet with their daily rates. They’re located at La Salle Ave., Roli’s Arcade. If you ride a jeepney going to La Salle University, you cannot miss it.

    The Hostelry’s Lobby

    Upon entering, you’ll find yourself at the lobby where you’ll find the front desk. You’ll see 4 clocks behind the front desk with different time zones. There’s seating available, and the staff manning the desk, in my experience, always welcomed questions and extended her assistance with anything.

    This Bacolod backpacker inn currently has 4 types of rooms:

    Matrimonial Room – P999/Night

    The Hostelry - Backpackers Inn Bacolod - 6

    The Hostelry: Matrimonial Room. I like this room because of the soap and the swan-towel.

    • 1 Matrimonial Bed
    • Please double check if the available Matrimonial room has a private restroom. When I came over, the room we saw had a private bathroom.
    • This room is spacious! It also has enough closet-space for your things.
    • Extra bed: P200/Night


    Twin Room – P999/Night

    The Hostelry - Backpackers Inn Bacolod - 3

    The Hostelry: Twin Room. It’s spacious! All the rooms have a minimalistic feel to them.

    • 2 Twin Beds
    • This is very similar with the matrimonial room except that it has 2 beds. You may also double check if there’s a private restroom in an available Twin Room, but I was shown one that had a private bathroom.
    • There’s also enough room for your clothes and bags.

    Guests can lounge here, read books, chit chat with each other or receive guests. They also have a media room available for guests to use.

    There are communal rest rooms as well. There’s no kitchen yet, but the hostel is working on it. There’s a Roli’s Restaurant downstairs where guests can eat at, but there’s plenty of other places to chow down in within the area.

    Instead of going to a hotel (that can be expensive), try The Hostelry for almost the same kind of comfort at a lesser price.
